Take A Hike!

Sometimes it’s about the journey and sometimes it’s about clearing your mind. But it’s always good to just get out and unwind… Let nature take you in and you exhale & let go!

Tell the world and everyone Take A Hike!

A Park Wedding

Simple yet Elegant. Every bride wants to be the center of attention on her wedding day. Some spend thousands of dollars to achieve this. Money is poured out from gowns to venues. But isn’t it love that matters most. The memories at this joyous occasion that will last in our hearts and our minds?!?! Do we need the glitz and glamour? Or will nature and natural love suffice? It is ENOUGH

Field of Dreams!

Last week I went to visit a friend at her home for the first time. She had stated to me numerous of times that she was in the country! But as I traveled from the city… It really hit me! This girl lives in the boondocks! The scenery was so relaxing and I felt at peace. The street that her house is on has the prettiest field! And a dirt road leads you to her home. Her yard was like a little garden!

We sat on this country gone modern porch and talked and laughed and drank. I stayed over and outside the guest room window I could see perfectly aligned fields. Excellent to dream to.

A day well spent!

This had to be the perfect Monday! Just to sit and stare at the mountains! Feeling the breeze and seeing the clouds roll in. It really didn’t matter that it began to rain. The Bistro umbrella was there to keep me dry. But even if I had gotten wet; everything would still proven to be great.

Saint Paul’s Mountain Vineyard proved to be the perfect pit stop… That turned into a half day visit. I didn’t even venture on to my original destination. This was GREAT enough!

Unusual WINTER Blizzard

Snow is unusual for the Queen City! We get snow but is flighty! Here today and just like it appeared! It disappear! Gone tomorrow. To be honest, I like it like that. Snow is beautiful but I’m a mover and a shaker. Don’t like to be slowed down. Charlotte, NC is not prepared for this type of SNOW so the city has come to a sudden halt. This causes me to feel caged! I wanna fly like my beloved birds. But back to the topic on hand. We have been advised not to leave home if not medically necessary. Schools have been closed for 3 days now. But it is a beautiful sight. I have been going on winter land treks. I hope you enjoy my amateur photos.

Barista!

Trying to stay warm in this SNOW! and SNOW is a bit rare in my area. We get snow but it is here one day and gone the next day. Well not this time! It has been SNOWING almost none stop for two days! WOW! So I must steep! Being inspired by God’s beauty and creative work at play… I decided to play and create too! So steeped my beautiful lady like teas! ‘Lady Like’ you may say?!?! Well, it starts as a bud and as the water boils she blossoms into a beautiful full grown flower or ‘Lady’! These teas come in all different flavors with different color flowers.

Blasting Beats!

I been wanting so long to get next to you!
Baby you keep me up at night time thinking about your love and affection!
I’ve been drawn to you!
I hope you feel the same!
And if I could have my way I would spend my life with falling in love.
It just hit me!
I feel like falling in love!
Don’t lie about how you feel!
Oh it just hit me!
Oh I feel like falling in love!
Don’t take so long!
Oh come get with me!
I feel like falling in love!
One day this love may be gone! LONG GONE!
Oh it just hit me! I feel like falling in love! It just hit! Come get with me!
Oh I feel like falling in love!

I must say that a few of my favorite pieces this time are the versatile woven piece… This can be worn as a belt or a head band. The green earrings are ranking high too. And the hair accessory is fabulous!
